Connecting with others in a community of faith has always been an essential component of following Christ. Life with God was never intended to be solitary. Though the first person ever created, Adam, lived in a perfect world not yet marred with sin, it was not good for him to be alone, we read in the early chapters of Genesis. Ever since God fashioned Eve from Adam, we've had a longing to know others and to be known by them. This is how God has meant it to be, so it's key for you, wherever you may be in life, to connect with others who are pursuing God.
